Words from the Participants

Why have you chosen to participate in the City to Surf event this year?

James Gard

The goal is to complete a half-marathon, and I set out three events for the year to help me achieve it. I've just recently completed the Bunbury 3 Waters 10km and now I am focussing on the City to Surf 12km in August.

Trent Smith

I completed the 2018 City to Surf and felt that 5 years later, it was a good time to do it again. This will be my first City to Surf as a 40+ year old.

Rochelle Dodds

To have something fun and a great fitness goal to work towards.

Nancy Dyer

To be involved in an event that promotes health and fitness, to support other participants and to add a social hype for our centre.

Sallyanne Power

To challenge myself with something I don't usually do.

Vanessa Everett

I haven't trained for a fun run in years but the City to Surf was the first fun run I did at the age of 14. I loved it and can't wait to participate this year.
